Saw this today and had to post it


THE Iraqi port city of Basra, already prey to a nasty turf war between rival militia factions, has now been gripped by a scary rumour – giant badgers are stalking the streets by night, eating humans.

The animals were allegedly released into the area by British forces.

Local farmers have caught and killed several of the beasts, but this has done nothing to dispel the rumour.

Cell phone video of the badgers circulating in Basra shows a stocky skunk-like animal with long front claws.

“I saw it three days ago at night attacking animals. It even ate a cow. It tore the cow up piece by piece. I tried to shoot it with my gun but it ran away into the orchards. I missed it,” he said.


Sounds an awful lot like a "Critter."



Worse than a badger anyway. Could be a genetically enhanced varmint of some sort. Whatever it is, it ain't a local.

I posted the exact same thing yesterday on BTS

Lol. It made me think of Critters too. Perhaps the film has only just got into circulation over there
